The name Shih Tzus means “little lion.” They were bred to be companion dogs, and although their origins are mysterious, some say that they were bred by Tibetan monks for royal owners. They are certainly one of the most ancient breeds, as well as being one of the most popular in the world even to this day.

Shih Tzus are relatively easy to look after. They have long coats, however, and that means that a good daily brush is in order to get rid of any tangles. Many owners choose to sheer their Shih Tzus a few times during the year to keep their hair short. This not only makes it easy to look after them, but they also look adorable!
Once you have found a puppy from a Shih Tzu breeder in the Uptown Network, you should remember to make sure they get enough exercise. They are small but lively dogs, and they love playing and going for walks. But they don’t need as much exercise as some of the larger breeds. A walk a day and some playtime back home should be fine.
It’s a good idea to start training your Shih Tzu puppy relatively early on. They will enjoy training, but it’s also worth mentioning that they do tend to have a stubborn streak. This can make training a challenge sometimes. However, if you are patient and reward your dog and give them lots of encouragement, you should soon have a well-trained dog.
When you get a new pup from a Shih Tzu breeder in the Uptown Network, you will find that these dogs are perfect for seniors.
